Introduction: Simple Lighter Trick

for the inner pyromaniac in you! will keep you and your audience entertain for, well however long you stick to it.

things you will need:
2 hands (your own)
a lighter (any)

optional
axe
hairspray
other flammable sprays
water

Step 1: Hold the Little Button Down

light your lighter.
blow it out
make a fist
stick the end of the lighter in your fist (the part that sprays gas)

Step 2: Patience!

the longer you hold the lighter in your hand the foosh you get at the end

Step 3: Light It

now pull the lighter out of your fist, light it, then put at the top of your fist. if you did it right it will light, but it won't burn. yet. once it starts to burn open your hand in a sweeping gesture. it should flare up and die.

Step 4: Variations

you can also do stuff like using axe, hairspray or other flammables as the fuel, but i normally use lighter fluid. you can also get your hand wet, spray it then light it. there is literly millions of combinations. experiment and find your favorite.

note: this is my first instructable, so dont go easy and yes i do know almost everyone knows this trick but for those who dont here it is. btw i am not responsible for what you do. and sorry i dont have my own camera yet

Hi,

these are good traditional pyro tricks! But please be careful, and if you are going to publish can you take some photos of the stuff you did?

Im a 13 year old boy, home alone and I just did it about 5 minutes ago It Worked!!!! Is tried by using the gas from the lighter, but it didn't make the fire big, So I closed my fist and sprayed axe in there and turned the lighter on where the opening of my hand is and !y hand IGNITED WITH BLUE FIRE!!!!! When I let it stay there it burned me so i waved quickly! Then I did it gain and kept the fire in there longer IT WORKS!!!!! I'm putting his on my Instagram! I would recommend using axe!

my hairspray burns by itself, so when you spray it in your hand it wont be just the gas burning, trying to wave out the fire will only make it worse

I had a few of my friends hanging out one night and they were filling their mouths with the gas and blowing fire.
